I don't plan to have a drop down screen. I want to have it on the wall. I am getting measurement today to get better idea.
I might suggest a system comprised of 3 KEF In-Walls (Ci4100QL-THX) for the main Front array, and then using Micca 8"ers for the Surrounds and Micca 6" for the Atmos.
BAM! The KEFs will provide a level of volume and near esoteric sound quality wholly worthy of "Theater-Like" status, while the Micca's will more than "make due" for the Effects Channels. And they can always be upgraded later owning to their almost ridiculously low prices. I would NOT however suggest them as Mains or the Center. For a Theater such as yours, they are a "Kiss your Sister" choice.
........................unless your into such things and if so, I don't wanna hear about it...
The Sub Woofer is a bit more problematical...something really worthy isn't gonna come in at the price point I suggested earlier. HOWEVER.....if you opt for the Polk I mentioned, and supplement it with another one, (...placed and eq'd correctly...)your Theater will sound like you spent over $5K instead of a measly $1200.00.
Going forward, as you progress, you can expect to want to add some acoustic dampening Panels along the Walls /at the Rear....as such will allow you to run the system at reference levels without the room ringing or creating adverse Null points and Freq. cancellation.
Let's get you fully "in it to win it".
Projector-wise...well, 4K doesn't come without a price, and anything relating to lighting up an affordable LARGE Acoustic Screen just isn't gonna be within the stated budget.
But here are choices worthy of consideration for "reasonable sized" Spandex Screens.120" diagonal and below:
Optoma UHD50 (w/Lens Shift)
Otherwise, you have to consider the other 4K Compatible 1080p options to stay in line with your budget.
Your only other real option PJ-wise is to make unconscionable cuts in Speaker quality / prices and redirect the money into a Projector in the $1500-1800 range.
